Vyacheslav 'Yura' Useinov demonstrates a great mix of arts and crafts, and revives the traditions of weaving. By virtue of Useinov, textile artworks appear at the most recognizable and significant world auctions. Collectors and investors begin to show more of their interest in such works.
He works in various techniques, including unconventional chi and quilting (artistic stitching of flaps), as well as embroidery and carpet weaving. His visual language is influenced by the images that surround him everyday - from literature and cinema to his own illusions and nightmares.
In addition, Useinov is the author of his own philosophy - fractal realism. Fractals are repetitive geometric figures, changing their sizes but remaining similar to themselves.
Sometimes artworks of Useinov are accepted as a digital art but they are executed in the "old fashion" - brushes, paints, pencils. The artist follows the philosophical thesis: "Every atom must be made to the last degree of perfection and tension".
